Wrong Side Of The Roost
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Roy Holdren)
Dad Zone Music ASCAP/Flatbilly Songs ASCAP

When you’re in the barnyard better watch your step
There’s something that bites harder than a little old henpeck
All spurs and ruffled feathers every time you turn your head
And if he gets his beak on your behind you’ll see Rhode Island Red

'Cause he comes off a little too cocky
Ornery and mean and full of bull hockey
He’s ready to fight with anything that moves
It's like he got up on the wrong side of the roost

He’s farther down the pecking order than he thinks he is
He ain't the Alpha Chicken We straightened that out quick
He only got me two times before I figured his tricks
From now on I strut softly and carry a big stick

'Cause he comes off a little too cocky
Ornery and mean and full of bull hockey
He’s ready to fight with anything that moves
It's like he got up on the wrong side of the roost

If he keeps on coming at me with that flocked up attitude
I'm gonna get my ax and chopping block and change his name to Stew

'Cause he comes off a little too cocky
Ornery and mean and full of bull hockey
He’s ready to fight with anything that moves
It's like he got up on the wrong side of the roost
Just like he got up on the wrong side of the roost

Get off of my leg
